Noam Bramson delivered his State of the City message, saying the state of the City was strong and will be even stronger. Christine Pizzuti has a write up over at LoHud. According to Pizzuti, Bramson talked about the federal stimulus package, a partial hiring freeze, deferring capital expenditures, garbage pickup, a new hotel occupancy tax, LeCount Square, Garden Street corridor, and North Avenue corridor. The article does not mention Echo Bay Project, the Armory, Target or Kohl’s coming to New Roc City. Any other dogs not barking?
I’ve asked the City to provide a copy of the speech, audio or video. I suppose it will air on cable access at some point. For those who were there, please add more information about the speech in the comments section.
